Draft season

Premier Gordon Campbell may have given provincial Liberal bankrollers a sneak preview of some of his draft picks for the next election. While attending a fundraiser at Bear Mountain Resort developer Len Barrie's residence, the premier introduced Colwood Mayor Jody Twa and Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP partner Clark Roberts to the audience - suggesting the two might be party candidates in the next election.

Asked about the matter, Mayor Twa - who would presumably run in the proposed riding of Juan de Fuca - said, "I'll probably be able to speak more in the future. But it's not a good time for me to answer those questions." Meanwhile, in an interview last month, Mr. Roberts - the general counsel for the Liberal caucus when they were in opposition - told Public Eye he's "been asked a number of times whether I'm interested" - in the Saanich South nomination - "But no decision has been made."
